As I wrote in a comment thread last night, I have a thing for odd/awkward dancing. It definitely explains why I like Halcali so much, and back in the day Puffy. It’s also why I absolutely love Andre 3000’s “Hey Ya!” video (sure, there’s also the fact that it’s an impossibly catchy tune that I can’t get out of my head, but Andre’s dance routine is what keeps me watching the video). I’ll even stand up and admit to liking Fine Young Cannibals all those years ago because of the weird foot dance the guitarist and bassist used to do. I don’t know why I have this obsession for something so unimportant, but it just gets me everytime. I remember a great Beck show in Montreal back in 97 where he was really putting on the moves, but even then, he was almost too slick. It’s the simplicity and awkwardness that I like. The worse you are at dancing, the better. It’s especially satisfying when it comes from something you would not expect it from.
This is probably something I should have kept to myself.
